West-side All Paws Pet Center to relocate to 13th and Maize

WICHITA — Paul Baumann is preparing to make what he calls a 60-second move.

In October, he plans to relocate his west-side All Paws Pet Center from 21st and Maize to 13th and Maize.

"We're only moving literally 60 seconds away," Baumann says.

His store, which Baumann says has everything for a happy, healthy pet, has been near the southeast corner of 21st and Maize for almost four years. Baumann says it's a great corner, but it has its drawbacks, too.

"It's difficult getting in and out of the shopping center," he says. "At 13th and Maize, you can get right in.”

He'll be at 1444 N. Maize in a 9,100-square-foot center where Little Caesars pizza is.

Baumann likes that the center has plenty of parking and the building has an open floor plan that allows him to have more shelf space.

"It's the nuance of retail," Baumann says of his move. "You have to sit there and think about what the customer is thinking."
